She sat up in grandma's garage for 15 years, got her running so smoothly then started acting up like there's a vacuum leak, she will crank up and run at idle all day (run roughly though) but as soon as I put her in gear she goes dead everytime.. oil was changed (old oil was fine, no mixing of oil and water), she never ran hot on me.. I've had several people look at her, I've heard change plugs n wires again, blown head gasket, vacuum leak, and so on.. The blown head gasket everyone thinks is questionable because the oil is fine and she never ran hot.. I'm in a bad dilemma as a single mom of 3 my funds are limited but desperately need to be back on the road again or break grandma's heart and sell her for a dependable mechanically sound ride. Hope I can find answers here, I'd be tremendously grateful and appreciate it very much for any insight that could be given!! Have a wonderful day! Btw on the next page 1990 is the earliest year to choose from or can't submit but mine is a 1987 Ford Mustang LX Convertible 2.3

I just bought the car. I see there is a newer stereo and looks like there is wiring for sub/amp
was wondering where I should start.
fuses were good.
Idles rough and dies in park and neutral only. Does fine while in gear. Would the neutral safety switch cause this?
Both handles were plastic and they eventually fell off completely. I have two handles already, that I bought a while back
I could use some quick helpful info on a average or good price for the replacement of the steering coupler on this vehicle. I was told by the mechanic that the part was almost obsolete and may have to be modified from an aftermarket one if they can't find one. However I was quoted a price of$282.00 for parts & labor. Is that a good deal in SF bay area? Thanks for quick respose
